This account sees something over 10x more spam than genuine traffic, almost all of which is autofiltered.

CNN is behind the times.  We passed 90% junk (spam, viruses, bogus virus
warnings, worms, outscatter spam, C/R spam, etc.) a few years ago.
Locally, over the last three months, we've been rejecting > 98% of incoming
traffic with just two reported problems from internal and external users.

And almost all of that rejected traffic TCP-fingerprints as originating
from hosts running Windows.
